It was our mission to find some local snow so Fred took me up to Palomar Mountain. We hiked the Observatory trail, a trail in his district.
I was a little skeptical but Fred found me SNOW!
It took less than an hour to drive from Escondido to Palomar Mountain. It is amazing that in such a short drive you can be in a totally different biome.
The bark on this tree is a work of art.
I have been obsessed with the sky lately. On our way back down the mountain the view of the ocean was amplified by an inspiring palette of colors.
What a great way to spend Christmas Eve!
